Thank you Rosie & Family!

New York City is beautiful and awesome. And this time, it was more beautiful because I found one more reason to more awesomeness and that was being part of TestBashNY Conference that happened in New York City. I will be using “beautiful” word many times in this blog post because that’s what I feel like saying when I speak about TestBashNY. I met many passionate software testers with whom I used to communicate through social media. To name few I met Selena Delesie (The Soul Igniter – Indeed she is), Martin Hynie (He was the person I saw along with Rosie Sherry entering the restaurant before TestBashNY where I met many other testers. And I was so happy to have finally met him and he was my first friend at TestBashNY. I like his company :)), Elizabeth Zagroba (The Moon-Walk girl.Her 99 seconds talk was awesome with moon-walk skills), Rosie Sherry (A rockstar who made this happen and I am very thankful for her to create this opportunity for me), Dan Ashby (My brother with whom I had great time and the respect he has for TestInsane made me so happy), Mark Tomlinson (Attended performance awesomeness tutorial by Mark and I loved it. And he is awesome person), JeanAnn Harrison (We used to know each other through social media, but I happened to meet her finally and was happy), Ajoy Kumar Singha (The founder of TestingCircus whom I met in person for the third time), Perze Ababa (My brother who was happy to see

me and I was happy to see him. And we greeted each other through a giant HUG), Anna Royzman (She is awesome), Matt Heusser (Have known Matt for many years, but had a chance to meet him for the first time), Alessandra Moreira (We met 2 times in different places, but it was always “Hi” and then “Bye”. Hope to meet Ale next time and talk more:)), Kate Falanga (Heard to her talk which was awesome, but will talk more when I see her next time again), Tony (A brother from another mother. He was awesome and I felt so happy to connect with him again after TestBashNY as he invited me at his celebration on the occasion of his last day at his organization) and more. I also happened to network with more testers at NYC testers meet-up that happened at Booker Software company in New York City. One of the best tutorial that I attended was Mark Tomlinson’s Performance Awesomeness. He really nailed it and taught me something beautiful in just few hours. I appreciate his time in meeting and talking in his tutorial. He really is as awesome as performance awesomeness. I do not like to speak person by person because every person at TestBashNY was freaking awesome. And I loved every bit of my time when I was at TestBashNY.

It was great to catch-up with Keith Klain and Paul Holland at their DJ office in Bronx after the conference. We had some business discussions along with regular brotherhood talks J In short, I enjoyed the whole journey to New York City. Great people make great conferences, and people at this conference were awesome and that’s why TestBashNY rocked. Thanks again Rosie and all of the participants for making it rock.

I will be very much excited to see more testers at TestBash Brighton in 2016. Fingers crossed.
